A truly wonderful photo and an amazing story.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on-board the footplate of a steam train based at the great central railway, Nottingham, UK. An open air museum that keeps steam alive.
Time
The photograph was taken around 2pm during a dull overcast day.
Lighting
The lighting was quite difficult, although the footplate is open to the elements, the sun wasn't shining. However the natural glow from the fire certainly helped!
Equipment
I used a Nikon D800 & Nikon 16-35mm. No tripod or flash
Inspiration
I have always loved the nostalgia of steam. They're living breathing machines so to have the chance of riding on the footplate was fantastic. I wanted to capture the movement & the people keeping these trains running . Derek, the driver, has spent his whole life doing so.
Editing
The only post processing I did was to convert to black & white using Lightroom.
In my camera bag
The equipment I normally carry is a Nikon D800/D7000, a 10-20mm, 150-500mm & 50mm. My current tripod weighs a ton so I rarely take it out. Sometimes I have my SB-900 flash.
Feedback
If it's something you love or have a genuine interest in then all you have to do is ask. They may just let you get that little bit closer than normal. Enjoy the moment but also watch & learn, find a routine so you know where & when to take the photograph that will best tell the story. If you notice in this photo your eyes are lead from pressure bar, along his arm & to his eyes & out of the image. Making you look at everything in shot. You naturally look at an image from left to right, making this image easy on the eye & tells a story.
